The Church of San Agustin is beside the Picasso Museum and dates from the 17th century. The façade is Baroque and the church has three naves. The naves on the sides have five simple altars each. Corinthian pilasters decorate the main nave and give the church elegance. On top of the main altar is a cupola. This main altar is made of agate and is decorated with red marble and Corinthian columns. The artists responsible for this were Jose Martin de Aldehuela and Antonio Vilchez. The altar is decorated with a large sculpture of San Agustin, created by Father Felix Granda Buylla.
There is a red marble pulpit that calls attention. There is a second floor balcony at the entrance to the church that contains the choir. The crypt below the main altar contains the tombs of the Heredia and Larios Families, who were prominent in Malaga's history in the 19th century. Beside the main altar is the painting of San Juan de Dios, by the artist Niño de Guevara. There is a statue of the Virgen de las Angustias y Soledad that was created by Fernando Ortiz. This is one of Malaga's most beautiful churches.
